Lauded in last year’s rankings as a firm with “keenly honed expertise” which sets the industry benchmark for legal services, The World Trademark Review again recognized Harvey Siskind LLP and founding partner Peter Harvey in its WTR 1000, an annual publication which ranks trademark firms and practitioners, placing the firm in a small group of eminent practices “renowned for their top-end work” and Mr. Harvey among the top trademark attorneys in the country.
As California’s highest-ranked boutique law firm, Harvey Siskind LLP is praised in the WTR 1000 for its creative, vigorous and successful protection of some of the world’s most valuable trademarks. Noting the current business environment, in which brand and trademark protection has never been more necessary, the editors of the WTR 1000 give special attention to Harvey Siskind LLP’s boutique practice, spotlighting its high-level of service and expertise, as well as the respected reputation of its attorneys within the trademark community. The editors write:
Thanks to its compact size, Harvey Siskind is among the most nimble, creative and competitive firms on the market. Its attorneys provide cost-effective, high-end advice on everything from clearance and prosecution through to litigation and settlements to a diverse clientele. The group’s sharp tactical and strategic awareness further elevates its standing among its peers. “An accomplished lawyer and an effective and skilled advocate”, D Peter Harvey concentrates his practice on trademark-related litigation, trade dress and other IP rights. Recognised for his contributions to IP academia and several professional associations, he is acknowledged as “a dynamic member of the trademark community”.
Further, saying he is among “the crème de la crème” of trademark litigators in the WTR 1000’s state and national rankings, Mr. Harvey is named one of only two practitioners in the highest band of California enforcement and litigation trademark attorneys—a position, according to the editors, reserved for individuals whose “success hinges on reputations established over lengthy periods of time, something which enables them to secure the most high-profile, big-ticket work from the most demanding of clients.”
Mr. Harvey and his firm’s prominent inclusion in state and national rankings is the result of four months of interviews with hundreds of lawyers, attorneys and their clients involved with trademarks during the creation of this year’s WTR 1000. According to its editors, the WTR 1000 “shines a spotlight on the firms and individuals that are deemed outstanding” in developing and implementing brand strategies for clients in both global and local markets, as well as acting to protect their clients’ trademark rights in the event of infringement. The editors continue: “Individuals qualify for inclusion in the WTR 1000 upon receiving sufficient positive feedback from market sources with knowledge of their practice and the market within which they operate,” while firms qualify for recognition “on the basis of their depth of expertise, market presence and the level of work on which they are typically instructed.”
